Spine Car

This page is a posting of a few pictures of a spine car I recently did. I'm not happy with it yet. I need more parts to do a better one. A spine car is a low tare (non paying, that is, part of the car rather than the load) weight permanently coupled articulated TOFC (trailer on flat car) carrier. It typically carries one trailer or container per link. My model has 4 carrying sections. Having small containers in the center section is unprototypical. So what? This is Lego® we're talking about. You want prototypical, model in HO... For a very prototypical spine car, see The MR&T cover page.
